Lehi’s Dream and Nephi’s Vision

After learning about Lehi’s dream, Nephi inquired of the Lord and was taken away by the Spirit to a mountain and shown many things. He conversed with an angel and he was shown a series of future events.He was commanded to “Look!” 13 times, followed by a vision of certain things and each time tells us something important. The things Nephi saw after each “Look!” fit together logically and each “Look!” leads logically to the next to form an overall lesson.

What’s the point?

When we can divide up logically what Nephi saw, we understand more clearly what God was trying to illustrate to Nephi and what Nephi was trying to convey to us in his record.


This is a simple outline of the logicality of the vision and numbered list of all the things he saw.
